Melodic death metal band The Unguided have parted ways with guitarist/vocalist Roland Johannsson. The replacement for him will be Jonathan Thorpenberg, who performed with them on their last tour.

The band released this statement: “The Brotherhood’ EP initiates a complete new chapter in The Unguided universe and paves way for the upcoming trilogy of albums. Not only is it a new beginning of the band with the addition of the very gifted vocalist/guitarists Jonathan Thorpenberg, who will take over the heavy and crucial crown of Roland Johansson, but it also continues the story that’s been the pivot of which the lyrics and illustrations have orbited around since formation of the band. The two brand new compositions, ‘Nighttaker’ and ‘Daybreaker’, were the first songwriting initiative after the reformation and we’ll always try our best to honor our past legacy whilst keeping our minds wide open in regards to all the excellent musicianship that exist within the boundaries of this band.

The Unguided formed in Falkenberg, Sweden in 2010 after Richard Sjunnesson’s departure from Sonic Syndicate. They have released three studio albums to date.
